New Venture!

Hello world! I decided begin a blog about my new venture into the world of entrepreneurship. I recently retired after 30 years as Fine Arts Director for a large public school to accept a job with a startup company know as N.E.S.C.O. or the National Education Service Company. My title is Director of Development. My initial responsibility is to develop products and services for the educational community while building name recognition for the company.

Am I crazy? Why do I find such a daunting task exciting? Am I fooling myself? What the hell do I know about building a company after 31 years in teaching? I fear the company will realize they made a mistake hiring me and I’ll be sorry I gave up my secure, well paying boring job working with bureaucrats who lack vision or leadership.
